Builders Gold Coast

From Coomera in the north to Tugun in the south, the Gold Coast it a stunning place to call home.  

The charm lies in the eclectic mix of architecture, the natural beauty and sandy beaches and the gentle, laid-back nature of the people that call the GC home.

With golden beaches, stunning weather and a thriving entertainment and nightlife scene, who wouldn’t a stake in what the Gold Coast has to offer!

While the relaxed beach lifestyle tends to grab the headlines, this city also offers world-class educational institutions, promising jobs and great investment opportunities. Here’s ten top reasons you should go for gold:

1. The outdoors

Gold Coast offers a great outdoor lifestyle

From busy hotspots like Main Beach to local gems such as Echo Beach, there’s something for everyone here. The Gold Coast’s white sandy beaches stretch along 70 km of coastline, which play host to sporting events and recreational activities.

Burleigh National Park is a popular spot that offers stunning views of Surfers Paradise and the Pacific Ocean. Nearby, you can even explore the breathtaking Gondwana Rainforests, part of the largest subtropical rainforest system in the world.

2. The weather

While the sun might not shine every day on the Gold Coast, it does come pretty close. The city enjoys around 300 sunny days each year with temperatures averaging between 21°C and 28°C. And the winter is warm enough to swim and surf all year around.

3. The laidback lifestyle

The Gold Coast offers property growth potential

You’ll find that the pace of life here is slower than in other major cities, and the friendly locals love to stop and have a chat and balance hard work with plenty of sunshine and good times.

4. The multiculturalism

The Gold Coast is a fun, diverse and multicultural place to live. In fact, along with the many tourists that visit the area, nearly one in three residents were born overseas.

You’ll even find plenty of multicultural events and activities occurring each year, including the Multicultural Festival in September and Multicultural Month in August.  Southport’s popular Chinatown also hosts regular street markets and cultural festivals.

5. The nightlife

Gold Coast has dynamic nightlife

The streets of Surfers Paradise are lined with humming clubs, bars, restaurants. 

6. The world-class universities

The Gold Coast is home to several globally-ranked educational institutions. 

Griffith University, located in Southport, offers a wide variety of degrees in business, arts, communication and more to its student base of over 21,000. It has steadily risen in the QS University rankings over the last five years to sit in the top 250 universities in the world. 

Bond University, located in Robina, hosts international students from more than 90 countries. Bond has been rated #1 in Australia for student experience for the last 16 years. 

Southern Cross University has more than 16,000 students over three campuses in Northern NSW and the Gold Coast. It offers degrees in business, tourism, environmental and health sciences, Indigenous studies, education, law and a broad range of the arts.

8. The good public transport access

The city’s fantastic public transport system makes getting around very easy. There’s no shortage of buses, trains and trams to get you where you need to go, and the network usually runs on time.

Practical Completion

When it comes to building the term “Practical Completion” is like the holy grail. This is a day new homeowners look forward to as it is the day when ‘practically’ all the work on your new home has been completed.

That said, it is not the day you will get to take possession of your house. Terms like practical completion can sound like a full stop to the home building journey but there are several steps beyond this.

Here is a quick guide to the final stages of your house build and handover.

Handover Inspector

Between practical completion and handover there is often an inspection by an independent person or company who will look over the entire house and compile a list of defects against Australian standards of finished work.

These defects are then fixed prior to you moving in to help ensure your home is at the highest quality.

There is also likely to be some other formalities, like the final valuation of your home, and of course the final payment. It is generally a two week period from practical completion (PC) to handover.

Handover Day

Handover can take anywhere between 1-3 hours. This is where one of our team will take you around your home and explain everything to you.

Final cleans are done the day of or day before handover so everything is fresh for when you move in.

Just like at the PC stage you will go around your home with your site super. They will point out all the key functions of the house, like how to open and lock the doors and where the garage remote is stored.

After handover is when we step into what we call the defects period. This goes for 6 months, the standard HIA period is 3 months. We doubled it to give you and the home extra time to settle in!

During this period, we rely on the help of the new homeowners to help us note any defects such as leaks that may occur. We will also check in from time to time over the first few weeks and months.

At about the halfway period in the year, we will have a look over the defects that have been recorded and start preparing to go through them.

Moving In

Moving can be a stressful time. Here are some helpful reminders to help make the process as low-stress as possible.

First, make sure all the important stuff is safe – things like prescriptions, driver’s license, marriage, birth certificates, and passports.

Secondly, book in the disconnection of the utilities at your old address and the connection of the amenities, internet, and pay-tv at your new address. 

Also notify any relevant businesses (incl. Aus Post) of your change of address.
